Islamic Empires, 600-1600 Mainstream Edition by Tim Leadbeater

This book includes all the features of the bestselling Hodder History series which is up-to-date, motivating, differentiated and flexible. It covers the rise and fall of Islamic Empires from c600 to c1650 including chapters on: The Dawn of Islam; The Empire Unfurls; Islamic Civilisation; Holy Wars; The Mughal Empire. Investigations which encourage pupils to become historical detectives and develop their enquiry skills are on fascinating topics such as: The Life of Women; Survival Skills for Rulers; Salah-ad-Din and Richard the Lionheart. As well as promoting historical skills this book integrates literacy through its guidance on extended answer questions.


In both texts the glossaries in each chapter are impressively thorough and well differentiated. Both texts also enjoy plenty of illustrations and maps. The tasks in both texts are appropriately pitched, and vary enough to retain enthusiasm. Andy Wallace Head of History Ravens Wood School, Bromley Education Today
